Apple’s iPhones 6 series is already released and the Samsung’s flagship Galaxy Note 4 release date is announced for the next month, all the smart phones consumers around the world are in great confusion comparing the iPhone 6 Plus vs. Galaxy Note 4.
Samsung’s large displays are branded in the smartphone market; it is considered that a sector people will prefer them for its experience and knowledge of the XL form factor. But that doesn’t mean that all of them will dismiss Apple’s new iPhone 6 series with larger displays. So people have started comparing the specs of both the companies.
Let’s take the design factor into consideration, both the phones are worthy for their constructive design. Samsung has a polycarbonate soft-touch pleather back i.e., Note 3, without fake stitching whereas Apple has provided its customers with a premium Aluminium unibody. Apple is offering three color options namely silver, gold and space grey whereas Samsung is offering four color options namely black, white, gold and pink.
Note 4 is 12 percent taller and 18 percent wider with a larger screen, whereas the 6 Plus is 19 percent slimmer and 27 percent lighter. Even though there are no major differences between them, when compared for making a decision these are real facts. But both the phablets cannot be handled in one hand because of their bulky sizes. Both of them have made similar decisions of having their volume key and power button on the sides of the devices within a thumbs distance for easy accessibility.
The large, 5.7-inch Super AMOLED screen of Note 4 with a 1440 x 2560
Quad HD of 515 pixels per inch is a definitive highlight when compared to slightly smaller, 5.5-inch IPS panel with a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels, or some 401 ppi of iPhone 6 Plus. But while looking deeper on the calibration of the screen i.e., acceptance levels without color errors Apple succeeds with maximum brightness with outstanding 574 units. It does not mean that the Note 4 screen is not a good one as it also has many features in it.
The Touch ID sensor of the iPhone 6 Plus is quicker and easier than the fingerprint scanner of the Note 4. The Apple’s stylus capacitive pens which stimulate finger touches are pretty crude when compared to the Samsung’s S Pen stylus which gives a sense of precision and control along with note taking features.
Apple Pay is a wonderful option for using iPhone 6 Plus to use your Touch ID sensor and pay for the purchases made online. The Note4 has a heart rate sensor on the backside while iPhone needs third party apps which uses camera and flash to check the pulse.
Ultra Power Saving Mode might is a cool feature of Samsung which turns your device into a glorified feature phone. It is also impressive with Note 4 that if the device is charged using its default charger, 0 to 50 percent would be charged in about half an hour.
Apple provides with a wide range of storage starting from 16 GB to the maximum of 128 GB where as Samsung has provided to options 32 GB and 64 GB. An additional Micro SD card internal storage can be used in Note4 where as Apple doesn’t have this feature.
If the user prefers to have a split screen multi tasking mode as in desktops then Samsung multi window delivers but one has to keep in mind that only a handful of selective apps are available with it when compared to Apple’s device. The Note 4 lets the user with the feature of infrared where as Apple doesn’t. With this feature the user can even change channels on the television.
Again when it comes to Virtual reality, Note 4 is the only device compatible with the Samsung’s upcoming Gear VR headset.
All other feature comparisons shall be updated with you after the release of Samsung Note4 in October 2014. As of now, based on the facts given above I leave it to the readers to choose one from either of the smartphones which will suit their own requirements.
The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus were highly anticipated iOS smartphone for the last 2 years. Finally they were released by Apple Inc. on September 19, 2014. Apple really made 2 major records one being more than 4 million pre-orders within a day of availability and another being the sale of the iPhone series exceeded 10 million in the first three days.
Earlier Apple released iPhone series featuring small displays with width of 4 inches diagonally. As the companies like Samsung which were producing highly competing large display models which took a share of the smartphone market, Apple also decided to launch iPhone models with larger displays.
